Pooler, GA asked in Family Law and Child Support for Georgia

Q: Legitimation: I wasn’t married to the mother, so in the FA of the Father under “Assets” what should I list for claim?

I wasn’t married to my daughters’ mother, so should I complete the Assets section of the Financial Affidavit of the Father? Also, any item that I would list is my property, so what should I declare is the basis of the claim? Thanks!

A: If you're filing an action to legitimize it would be best to hire an attorney to represent you. The matter is much more complex than even filling out the financial affidavit. In response to your question, I'm not sure what not being married to the mother has to do with the assets section. You simply list all of your assets.
